Sheffield United have accepted a bid from Hull for defender Harry Maguire.

The Sky Bet League One club revealed they have "reluctantly" accepted the Tigers' new offer after they met their valuation of the centre-back and he and his representatives are now set to open talks over a move to the KC Stadium.

Marriner appointed ref

Referee Andre Marriner has been given another boost with the news he will take charge of this month's FA Cup semi-final between Hull and Sheffield United.

Marriner hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons when he mistakenly sent off Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs during the Gunners' 6-0 Premier League defeat by Chelsea for a handball that had been committed by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Clough plays down individual milstone

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough did his best to deflect all attention from himself after leading his side to the semi-finals of the FA Cup after a 2-0 win against Charlton.

There's not an awful lot of satisfaction for me personally.

I don't have a chart at home where you rank the games. I don't honestly, it's not about that.

It's about the players and supporters, especially this, celebrating together.

– Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough
